The Duke of Kendal in Black & White

Warm summer like evening with light still coming through the windows at the back of the PUB. Natural light felt unusual in this place and so did the crowd. No seats left even though we arrived almost an hour early. Many unknown faces, higher noise levels and slight irritation in the air. I don’t know if it was a product of the exposure on BBC Radio 4 but June, the 87 year old pianist said “There are so many people here nowadays, I hardly have a chance to talk to anyone anymore”. We can only hope this isn’t any proof of the Sunday singing becoming a victim of its own success.
Voices booming, singers in top form. The evening took off and tried to cary the atmosphere gracefully but became tainted by newcomers disrespectful laughter and talk. I guess everything can go through a phase and hope this one passes swiftly. It requires documenting through. I will keep documenting this place when ever I get a chance. It’s a record worth keeping.

    I love how you managed to capture the very exciting claps, snaps and shoulder shimmies.
